An artist’s tryst with nature

Chameli Ramachandran’s fascination with nature started as a student in Santiniketan. In her current show, ‘Enchanted Garden’, she responds to nature yet again as she paints leaves, flowers and trees as observed in her own garden. The exhibition offers a glimpse of the vegetal world that Ramachandran observed in the last three years. “In these latest studies, there are new elements of deeper empathy and identification with the vegetal world that she is painting. The graceful sway of the palm fronds, the elegant lilt in the movement of the kashphul plumes…express a unique vision of the artist in which she is not a mere observer, but is deeply immersed in the essence of their being,” mentions the curatorial note. On view at the Vadehra Art Gallery, D-40, Defence Colony, New Delhi, 10 am to 6 pm, closed on Sunday.
